Thank you for your interest in hosting a Line 5 Retirement Party!
Monday, April 23, 2018 marks the 65th anniversary of Enbridge’s easement that allows them to operate Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac. It's time for Line 5 to retire, because 65 years of this pipeline threatening the Great Lakes is long enough.
All around the Great Lakes state, people just like you will be hosting house parties on April 23 to help build the movement to shut down Line 5. Your party will be one out of many house parties being hosted across Michigan. They'll all happen simultaneously and will be digitally connected (from a big event in Traverse City) so that all people who care about the future of our Great Lakes and decommissioning this dangerous and antiquated pipeline can get on the same page and prepare to hold elected officials accountable in 2018!
Hosting a house party is simple; all you need is a location and a reliable internet connection with a computer to tune into our live video feed. Everything else you will need will be provided. We'll reach out to you with information, and will hold a training call before the party.
